International migration data collection: A paper prepared for the Policy Analysis and Research Programme of the Global Commission on International Migration

The paper gives an introduction to key terms, concepts, and methodologies in the field of migration in addition to covering inconsistencies in data collection and common shortcomings. The information was gathered by asking for the input from both developed countries (South Africa, Philippines, Ghana, Pakistan and Mexico) and developing countries (South Africa, Philippines, Ghana, Pakistan and Mexico) in the form of national questionnaires, the results of which are included at the end of the report. Top migration specialists were also consulted.
